    Yes. No sleep/wake issue either. Sound works fine too (back and front pannel audio).

    Which guide did you follow for iMessage, and is your system definition 17,1?

    Nothing was really working properly before. So, I started over. I started from this guide, for el capitan, using only the Internal graphic card hd 530. When everything was running fine, I did follow this guide: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/direct-update-to-macos-sierra-using-clover.201465/

    And again only using the HD 530 graphic card.

    Last but certainly not least, I did use the guide for enabling AMD RX 4XX cards in Sierra: https://www.tonymacx86.com/threads/enabling-amd-rx-4xx-cards-in-sierra.201364/

    Edit: Yes, my system definition is iMac 17,1.

    i am using an almost identical build (same mobo, i5 6500, 16gb corsair ram). Everything works great, but ethernet is really unstable (loses connection / IP every 5-10min). i tried mausi and intel with multibeast. any suggestions what i could try?

    Hello, I used this guide and built my fist computer last August. I had been very happy with my build.
    For whatever reason my computer went to a black screen and upon restart it only goes straight into bios screen now. Loading in safe mode does. It help and hold F12 no boot devices are available just "enter setup". What should I do?

    Things that may be contributing issues: I never got the screen sleep issue resolved or the ram issue (only thought I had 16). I just moved to Japan from the US, it had been working fine when I'd used it for and hour here and there the past 2-3 days. Could it be the voltage change from 120 to 100 here in Japan? Lastly, hours before the crash I did receive the "unauthorized caller" error while watching a video in full screen. I clicked ok as it was the only option, nothing occurred it went away and I continued to watch until the crash.

    Initial googling shows that the "unauthorized caller" isn't a hackintosh issue, but it does cause some strange things (as I've said, loading in safe mode did no good, nothing's there). Bios is still set up via guide's instructions. Any ideas?

    *Edit: 12 hours later it started right up, albeit with default settings, but with all my files.

    ...but everything has crashed again. This time I could navigate and start up the proper drive but the white apple logo in the middle of the screen turned into a crossed out circle.

    Yet again, could I please get some input?
